Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers.

This hitch fit very nicely. This is the second such hitch I've installed. First on a "96 Tacoma and this time on a "98 Tacoma. Both fit surprisingly well. It arrived with some paint scuffed off, but I fixed that. 519882

This is the 5th hitch I have installed, the first on a truck and 22 years old, not new. No collision history, but the fit was very tight and required some pounding. The sequence of bolt placement should probably start at the frame rails rather the angle bracket which positioned the most forward holes off center. The 4 metric hex nuts were replaced with 1/2"-13 nuts in the hardware packet. The old nuts were reused, so no trip to the store. This will provide me with a versatile farm truck with flexible towing and hauling capabilities. 518757

Zero complaints. Everything went perfect. Shipped very fast, and mounted on my 03' Tacoma with no issues. Took about an hour for me to install (would have been faster with air tools, but wife and baby were asleep). The Hopkins wiring kit was really easy too. Time to go buy a boat and go fishing. 634241

Install was a pretty straight forward. Without pneumatics you'll want a 2' break-over bar for this job and I'd PB Blaster the existing hardware the night before for easier removal. There are bolts in the holes for the forward-most mounts. The instructions show an empty hole. I wouldn't recommend even attempting to remove these with a standard 14mm socket & ratchet. Having tried and nearly rounding the heads I bought an Irwin Bolt Grip set ($33 at NAPA, be sure to get the one with the 14mm size) and they came out with considerable effort on the end of my 2' bar. Be sure to keep the socket square on the head and be patient. Once the unnecessary hardware was removed and the flanges installed at the back I put the hitch in place with all hardware loose to ensure clean threading of the forward bolts into the captured nut in the frame. Square things up to the bumper and tighten all the hardware (2 each: bumper mount nuts/bolts holding the flange, forward bolts into captured nut in frame, rear machine bolts/nuts mounting hitch to frame through the flanges). Three hours including the trip to NAPA, should have taken about half that time. Good luck! 78486

My hitch is working just like the day I installed it. I use it once a month for work and am glad to have it when I need it. It was a good deal, a good product and relatively easy install. Would absolutely recommend.

2004 Toyota Tacoma

Install was fairly easy. I made my mistake by following the video instead of the printed instructions. My install was on a 2004 Tacoma. Instead of the removing the bolts 16" from the back of the frame I removed the ones closest to the bumper (WRONG). I had to drop the hitch back out and remove the ones specified in the printed instructions as said earlier 16". The only other problem I ran into was positioning the hitch. I was doing it alone and after trying to man handle it into place, I decided it to drop the spare. After droping the spare it went right in. If you're working by yourself I'd advise droping the spare the extra room makes for a easier install. All holes lined up perfectly. I'm very happy with this product. Install, even with my minor problems, still only took 45 minutes. 18427

Solid hitch. Paint chips on the edge of the laser cuts is typical, I was told. Specific touch up paint was suggested. At price offered, powder coating would be expecting too much, I guess. Hardware bag had right piece count but a critical piece missing. Recommend you inspect all hardware before kicking off the DIY project. Customer service promptly shipped out the missing piece. I found etrailer.com a very user friendly website. Customer service was very responsive. Chips were minor, so had the hardware been correct this would be a 5 star rating. 720406

Ball mount comes with pin and clip but it did not say that in the description, so we bought a pin and clip which we don't need. Not expensive and more postage to send it back than we would get for it, but we will end up throwing it away which is a total waste of resources. The hitch was packaged with no covering on the ends so they broke through the box which was in tatters by the time it arrived. Fortunately, the small items that were packed in the box did not fall out. Other than that, all materials arrived in a timely manner and the order was accurate. 670549

Ask the Experts about this Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch

  • Options for Towing with 2004 Toyota Tacoma, Bumper Hitch Ball or Frame Mounted Hitch
    If you plan to tow very light trailers the bumper hitch ball option you mentioned on your 2004 Toyota Tacoma would be adequate. The best option for towing anything substantial would be a frame mounted hitch like the Draw Tite part # 75078 that you referenced though. This gives you the flexibility to tow what you mentioned as well as tow heavier trailers in the future as well. It has a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs trailer weight.

    The part number used for replacement hitch hardware is # RHK.

Since Hidden Hitch isn't made anymore and Draw Tite hitches were the exact same (they're still around), what you can do if you can't find the part number is use Draw Tite as the manufacturer and # 75078 as the part number.
